CHAPEL QEMS 



FOR 



SUNDAY SCHOOLS; 



SELECTED FROM 



" OUR SONG BIRDS," FOR 1866, 



The " Snow Bird," the "Robin," the " Red Bird" and the " Dove." 



BY 



GEO, F. ROOT and B. R, HANBY. 



CHICAGO : 

rUBLISHEl) BY ROOT & CADY, G1 WASHINGTON STREET. 



The Sunday School sliouM open witli singing; for tli-re are always tardy ones, and it is better 
thut singing bo interruiitod, (if it must be so,) than reading the Scriptures, or prayer. 

It should open, too, with a Song, in preference to a IIvmn, for the former will bear interruption 
better tlian the latter. And this is the difference between the two, as we desire the terms to be 
applied to the Sunday School music, proper, which we present in this book, 

A Hymn always addresses the Deity, and is the only kind of sacred music that is strictly Bevo- 
timuit. A Song may be concerning the Deity, but it is never to Him, only about Him. It is simply 
pious or religious. A Hymn has but one theme. A song may have any theme in tlie range of 
Christian Doctrine or Experience. Sonietimesa Sono rises almost to the dignity of a Hymn; some- 
times the two are combined, as in Dismission Hymn, page 21. A Hymn should always be sung in 
a subdued, reverent spirit. There is more latitude to the style of expression in a Song. 

The Hymn comes in most appropriately just before beginning the regular lesson of the lumr. 
Songs come properly immediately after the lesson, and before the books and papers are distributed. 

A certain class of songs will not be found in this book, notwithstanding their popularity with 
some. We refer to those that picture this world as a " howling wilderness," a " gloomy dcfrert," &c., 
and adding expressions of dissatisfaction with the present life, and a desire to "get rid of it," and 
" be at rest." When children sing such songs, they sing what, to them, at least, is not true ; the impro- 
priety of which, (if not something worse,) ought to be manifest to all. On the other hand, we have 
sought for songs as far as we conld, that impress the duty of cheerful submission to the daily 
cross, and the daily trials that are doubtless apportioned to each as a part of his needful discipline. 

Believing that our patrons do not care to pay for what they already have in two or three different 
sets of music books in tlnir libraries, we have inserted none of the "old standard favorites," 
(though tluy are very convenient for "tilling up,") but present wurds and music all new, original, 
and prepared especially for this book, with but one or two exceptions. 

Believing, also, that it is not so much the number of jneces named in th". Index, that constitutes 
the desidenilum, as the solid intrinsic merit of those that are presented, we have refrained from 
filling oci aiional pages, with words to be sung to tunes in other parts of the book. 

As the page is twenty-five per cent, larger than in other books at the same price, we hav^ felt at 
liberty to use larger, clearer type. The advantage of this in feading new music and words, or read 
ing in a dim light— (alas, that the light in so many of our "basements" should be so dim !)— will 
be manifest. 

It is customary for authors to indicate certain pieces in their works which will probably be 
welcomed as favorites. 

We are satisfied that authors are poorly prepared to decide this matter. 

All the songs in the book, with many others, have previously appeared in a Juvenile Musical 
Quarterly* whiih we publish, and which is intended to furnish every kind of song that is proper or 
•useful for children to sing. The contents of these numbers, as they came out, have been, during 
the past year, tested by our subscribers in all their variety of uses, — around the Family Altar, in 
the Social Circle, in the Day School, the Sunday School; at the Picnic, the Concert, the Exhibition, 
Ac; and we have been apprised, and we will add surprised, at the preferences indicated. 

In the town of , the children of one of the public schools had mastered and could sing 

every page of the fiist No. (Snow Bird.) They were requested on one occasion to call out, each one 
simultaneously, the name of his favorite. The verdict was almost unaijimous for a song which we 
had feared, (atfor it had gone to press,) would prove of little value, if not useless. 

We have submitted, therefore, to the decisions of the subscribers referred to, and have selected 
accordingly. It is safe to say that almost every piece in the book is a favorite with those who have 
seen it in the " Song Birds." * W'e will only add on this point that the Infant Class Department ha.s 
received special attention, and that the music therein will perhaps be found pleasing to "children 
of a larger growth." 

It is a remarkable fact, that while almost every denomination has a greater or less number of 
Sunday School Exhibition Hor)ks, abounding with all kinds of Speeches and Dialogues, from grave 
to gay — no suitable music has ever been provided for these occasions, nor for Sunday School 
Musical Concerts, Picnics, &c. 

We have made this a new and separate department. As a guarantee of its completeness, we will 
only say that the leading music of ihe monster Children's Concert at Crosby's Opera House, in this 
city — in Leavenworth, Milwaukee, and many other places, during the past winter, was selected 
entirely from " Our Song Birds," and that from these we have chosen the best only for Chapel Qenw.

We must work alone on our journoy now, 

'Neath a grief that is all untold, 
For the dust is laid o'er the broad white brow, 

Yet we dream of the Upper Fold — 
For an angel holdeth the book of Life, 
And lo' on its page enrolled 
Are their sweet child-names, who have passed from strife

In lilied pastures feeding. 
And He, the Shepherd of our lov-"'. 

The lambs so gently leading.

For loved ones, summoned early ; 
We see no shadow of the grave, 

Beyond the portals pearly : 
But tell us more of tli.it bright shore, 

Of Ilim, who will deliver 
From every snare of sin and care, 

And lead us o'er the river.

Will sing the story olden, 
And pass along the shining strand, 

O'er streets willi paveineni ^oldeu ; 
And o'er and o'er will we adore

And bieathe His praise in sweetest

86 Suggestions. 



"NVill the teachers of the infant classes, (the most important of the Sabliath school,) indulge iis in 
a few suggestions from time to time? We have appropriated a portion of this little book to Infant 
Ckiss Music, as you see; but to make it still more efficient, we desire occasionally to submit some 
practical directions with regard to its use, and even to ofler some suggestions as to other exercises 
beside those of singing. 

We begin by asking whether the repetition of Scripture verses by individnal pupils in different 
parts of the room, (a practice in very general use,) might not bo supplanted by something more 
generally interesting and profitable? To put the question in more general terms, should any exer- 
cise be allowed to occupy much of the time, that does not require that all in the roovi take part? 
If a speaker, for instance, undertakes to address the class, he will find it very difficult to hold their 
undivided attention even for five minutes, without interspersing his remarks with questions to 
which all are invited to reply. 

When the hymn is sung, all the little voltes peal out. When the prayer, " Our Father," is utt^^ed, 
all hands are clasped, and all lips reverently murmur the beautiful petition. Thus far all is 
dehghtful; but when the question comes, "Now who has a verse to repeat?" the signal is given for 
confusion. A score or two of hands go up. and each is anxious to have his turn. The words are 
uttered almost inaudibly, and so imperfectly as to require frequent correction. The process is a 
severe tax upon the patience of the majority, and terminating, as it often must, before all have had 
an opportunity to recite their verses, ends in disappointing some of them. Only the rarest t.act and 
ingenuity on the part of a teacher, will carry a school through buch an exercise in an orderly man- 
ner. We would, as a general rule, (of course subject to occasional exceptions,) say, never introduce 
an exercise which shall require the little ones very long to keep silent, but insist, when silence is 
necessary, upon its strict observance. Never introduce exercises except those in which all may 
take a part, and then see that all engage in it. Thus only, we think, can universal attention bo 
pecured, and good imparted to all. 

We propose to keep this principle always in view in the preparation of matter for this depart 
ment, and believing that many would be glad to see this illustrated in all the other exercises beside 
sin.ing, we venture to offer the following "Infant Ritual," if you please to call it so, inviting the 
teacher to test its merits by actual experiment. 

[The assistant teacher takes her place in the midst of the pupils to teach them the responses, 
ajid unite with them in uttering them.] 

{Bell taps, and all become quiet.) 

Principal Teacher. Children, listen, for I shall have a question to asK you 
about what I am reading. (Reads.) 

Ps. cxlvii. Praise the Lord. 

What does the psalmist tell you to do? 

Children. To praise the Lord. 

T. (Reads.) 

Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights. Praise ye him all his angels: 
praise ye him all his hosts. 

T. What are all these to do ? 

C. Praise the Lord. 

Praise him sun and moon: praise him all ye stars of light. Praise him ye heaven of heavens, 
and ye waters that be above the heavens. 

T, And what are these to do? 

C. Praise the Lord. 

T. Yes, that is right, for the Psalmist adds: 

Let them praise the name of the Lord, for he commanded, and they were created. He hath 
made a decree which shall not pass. 



87 

Now listen ao;aiD. 

Praiso yc tliK Lord from tho oarth, ye dragons aud all deeps, fire and hall, bhow and vapor. 
Btonny wind fullilling his word. Mountains and all hills, fruitflil treea and all cedars, Deasts and all 
cattlo', cret-ping things and tlymg fowl. 

T. What are all these to do ? 

C. Praise the Lord. 

T. Can such things praise tho Lord ? 

C. All his works praise him. 

Kingg of the earth aud all people, princes and all judges of the earth. Both young men and 
maidens, old inou and children. Let them prai.so the namu ((f the Lord; for his name alone ia ex- 
cellent, his glory is above the earth aud heavens. 

T. Can children praise the Lord? 

C. Yes. 

T. When ? 

C. Alwavs. 

T. Where ? 

C. Everywhere. 

T. How'? 

C. By doing that which is pleasing in his sight. 

T. How can you please Him at home? 

C. (The assistant teacher will here repeat the following to the children, they 
repeating after her.) By obedience to our parents. .. .respect for our superiors 
. . . .and love for our brothers and sisters. 

T. Can you do this in the right spirit, of yourselves ? 

C. No It is God who worketh in us, . . .to will and to do. . . .of hia good 

pleasure. 

T. Will God always help us in this vva}^ ? 

C Yes. . . .if we look to Him and ask Him. 

T. How can you please Him at school ? 

C. By learning our lessons. .. .by loving our teachers. .. .and obeying the 
rules. 

T. How on the play ground? 

C. By gentle actions. . . .and kind words. 

T. And in doing all these things you would praise the Lord, would you ? 

C. Yes. 

T. How would you praise Him at church ? 

C. By talking about Him. . . .and V)y singing and praying to Him. 

T. Very well. Let us now do each of these. We will begin l)y talking il 
concert about him. We will all say tho same worda. Let us do so with deep 
humility, and in a reverent tone. 

All recite after me. 

I will Hi>6:ik of th>' glorious honor of thy majenty and of thy wondrous works The Ixird 

la gracious and full of compassion ; slow to anger and i>f ureal mercy The Lord is good to all, 

and nis tender m«<rcieM are over all hi.s works All thy works shall praise thee, 6 

Lord and thy saints Khali hless thee They shall Kpeak of the glory of thy kingdom 

and talk of thy pow.-r To make known to tho sons of men his mighty acta and tht< glori 

oua mjijesty of his kiuirdom Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom thy dominion is 

throughout all gent-rations The lA»rd is righteous in all his ways and holy in all his works 

The Lord preserveth all them that love him but the wi«k«d will he destroy. 

T. Now we will sing a hymn of i)raise. I will sing part and yuu may sing 
part. Your part will be very eaiiily learned. I will sing it for you. ('lraoh»-r 
sin^s.) 



mwm^immmmm 



For his mercy endureth forever ; For his mercy endureth forever. 

When the pupils have done this, which they will do almost instantly, the 
teachers will say : 

T, Now you must sing only half of your song at a time. I will sing a few 
words alone, and thtu you may put in the first half, then I will sing some 
more, and you may sing the second half of your song. You see it comes in very 
prettily. 




give thanks unto the Lord ; for he 

is good. 



C. For his mercy endureth forever. 




T. Oh give thanks unto the God of 

Gods ; C. For his mercy &c. 

T. Oh give thanks unto the Lord of 

Lords ; C. For his mercy &e. 

T, To him who alone doeth great won- ♦ 

ders ; C. For his mercy &c. 

T. To him that by wisdom made the 

heavens ; C. For his mercy &c. 

T. To him that stretched out the earth 

above the waters ; C. For his mercy &c. 

T. Who remembered us in our low es- 
tate ; C. For his mercy &c. 
T. And hath redeemed ns from our 

enemies ; C. For his mercy <fec. 

T. Who giveth food to all flesh ; C. For his mercy &o. 

T. Oh give thanks unto the God of 

Heaven ; C. For his mercy &c, 

[Note.— If the teacher is not accustomed to chantiug, we would say, pronounce the worda m 
the above exercise exactly aa if you were talking, only in a monotone, at the pitch indicated, the 
children beginning the response a third b«jlow.] 

T. Now, we have talked of the Lord and sung His praises, let us pray to Him. 

[Here all kneel or rise to their feet, close their eyes, clasp their hands, and reverently repeat tha 
.lOrd's Prayer.] 

Our Father, who art in Heaven, &c.

Sunday Scliool Exliibitioiis, Concerts, Picnics, etc. 01 

The usefulness of all these in their place is generally acknowledged, and we need not discuss thnir 
ni'-rits. We are only suri)ris<'d tliat nobody has ever thonj^lit of providing Huitatile ninsic for sin-h 
occasions, and we |. resent with this book, a now, and we believe, very useful department of music 
fur thu purposes intended. 

"\Vt> must be permitted to add some special remarks on Sunday School Musical Concerts. During 
tlie 1 ist winter, a monster Sunday school concert was given by six linndred children, umler the 
(lir.-ction of Prof. Foote, in Crosby's Opera House, and certainly no assembly has ever come tog«'ther 
in tliat building before or since, and enjoyed so much real happiness, or derived so nnirh good, 
livery part of the building was filled to overflowing, and the concert was repeated twict; by request 
witli like success. Similar results, and even more marked, attended the concert given at Leaven- 
worth, Kansas, by one thousand children, conducred by Kev. R. Brown.* The advantages of huch 
cuncerts, even when given by a single school, are: 

ISTLV, The children improve in singing, as will be observed by the difiFerence in their singing 
in Sunday School, before and after the concert. 

2MDLT, There is very little opportunity to learn new pieces in the Sunday School, simply because it 
is a Sunday School, not a Sinffing School ; the hour is too short, and too sacred. 

.3rdi,y, There are many kinds of songs which all children ought to sing, such a.^ have referencH to 
Tiiiiperance, Love of Country. Obedience to Superiors, Kindness to animals. Natural Scen.-ry. the 
dignity and usetuln>ss of Lat>or. Ac, with some nmusing songs, of course. iVo«<! of these, are M-er 
sung in the Sumlai/ School, and alas, nowhere else ! The teachers of the public schools, while admitting 
the advantages of singing among their pupils, feci, many of them, unable to assume the additional 
burden of teaching them, ai;d many of them cannot sing. This is true, with somenottle e.xceptiouH, 
of tJie West and Northwest generally, outside of Indianapolis, Chic.igo. &c.. wliere singiuji is tau<:ht 
by a Piofessur: and thin is ahso proportionably true of towns and villages in the East. So all the 
.songs learned by the children are limited to those they learn at the Sundny s^cliool. and tliose tlu-y 
jiiok up on the street. A thorouj.'h prep.iraiion of six or eight weeks, meeiing once or twice a we»k, 
for a concert embracing half Sunday .School music, and half Miscellaneous, will improve the singing 
in the Sunday Schools, and furni>h a choice lot of songs for after use in the Home Circle and the Day 
Scliool, which the children will be able to sing without help from teacher or parents. 

4THLV, Then, too, the moral effect of such concerts on the audi.-nco, and on the sinjrers, are inostima- 
ble; and their after use in the Home Circle equally so. Every judicious mother will know <xactlv what 
us.' to make of '■Holt.-r Brook" "Willie and the Angels," "Was it Right?" "The Blind Boy," &c., 
in the management of iier children. 

oTHLT, As a means of raising money, these concerts are superior to all the fairs that have been 
product-d. Half the trouble and worry; none of tbe ijufslionahle amusements, and double the enjoy- 
ment, double the pecuniary results, with nothing but what is pleasant and useful after all ii over. 

We urge, therefore, as the best means at present in the power of the people, that in every town 
and village, all over the land, a grand Sunday School or Juvenile Musical Concert be given, at least 
once every year. Let it emltrace all the schools, if possible, or delegations chosen by each. But if 
not more than a sinjjle school is concerned, that will do better than nothing. The number should 
be as large as possible. Do not let the children strain their voices. Teach them to sing with 
expression, and to sin-f distinctly. 

And we ],ropose, that where the number is five hundred, or upwards, (aa tlie oxi)ense of buyinp: 
so many books would be heavy, and teaching by rote very tedious.) to furni.-h h pamphlet of any 
fifteen pages you may select from Ciiapki, Gem.s, at 3 cts. per copy. The oflVr to staml uood for the 
vcarl^t^T. No orders received for b-ss than five hundred copies. Let all who love the cause do s<»n«- 
t/tirtf/, and great things will result. 

* We m.ay be pard«med for remarking that all tlie music of the latter concert was obtained from 
" Hi I r Son '4 Birds," and uU tha leading pieces of the former; and that the bent of these sue to be found in 
this work.

"Feed My Lambs." 



For Sunday School Concerts or Exhibitions. To be sung by eleven little girls, standing in the 
fonn of a crescent, each with a card or shield hung upon the breast, having upon it one letter of th»» 
Scripture motto which is the theme of the whole song. At first the letters are all reversed and un- 
seen. But each singer turns her card and reveals her letter as she sings. All may sing the first six 
lines of the iioetry if desired. J. H. Edwards.
